A Trunk Full of Money

A Virginia Hall family member came home from the Civil War. All he had left was a truck full of money --- worthless Confederate money!

Despondent - he ended his life.

Years afterwards, folks living in his old home said they could see the bloodstains on the floor. They couldn't be removed!

A Bedford Co., Va. folk tale.
